If the .pc file is the ONLY file that would qualify for -devel (aka, no
headers, no static libs, nothing to develop a program against), then
there is no reason to force a -devel subpackage just for it.

So just to be explicit here, can we change Packaging/ReviewGuidelines from:

"- MUST: Files used by pkgconfig (.pc files) must be in a -devel package."

to something like:
"-MUST: If there is a -devel package, files used by pkgconfig (.pc
files) must be in -devel."

Thanks :)
